to think that was a big deal that i said we tell the other side of the story. i wish i had said the full story. here's what i meant. >> jon: wait. that was a big deal that you said that. that's your setting the record straight? i accidentally told the truth and wish i could take it back? you're not the... ( cheers and applause ) that's crazy. how are you not the counterweight? >> let me give you a classic example of what fair and balanced means to me. after hurricane katrina, the mainstream media piled on fema for its failure to respond to the crisis. and the federal government did a lousy job. but it was fox news that started reporting on the failure of the first responders, the city of new orleans and the state of louisiana to help people. yes, we reported fema's problems but we also told the other side of the story. >> jon: that's your example? you had a week to prepare an example and you came up with in 2005 everyone was (beep) on the republicans and we made sure they understood that local louisiana democrats (beep) too. i mean, just out of curiosity in your week of digging for that

, to have a big fight in washington about what we are going to prioritize in this country, what we are going to spend money on and not going to spend money on. the president said yesterday the fight about the debt ceiling is not going to be some short-term stop-gap measure to tie the fight over to another day. the president said he wants to have the fight now. we are coming out of the great recession, but still tough times economically. given that, how should we be allocating our resources as a country? the republican stance in this big argument, the republican position is that they will not allow taxes to go up one penny, even if democrats only want to raise taxes on the richest people in the country. >> a tax hike cannot pass the u.s. house of representatives. it's not just a bad idea, it doesn't have the votes, and it can't happen. the american people don't want us to raise taxes. >> american people do not want us to raise taxes, makes for a nice, tidy, talking point in this fight. it does not, however, appear to be a true talking point. most recent poll to poll on this question said when
and this one at foggy bottom is surrounded because it is being replaced. it is boarded up and there is a big sign that says it is part of this project. it has been like that for most of the year. metro's latest report card is not getting high marks. it is due out today. dozens of escalators are out throughout the system this morning. the escalator problem came to light last october when the brakes failed at l'enfant plaza during the jon stewart sanity rally sending dozens of riders tumbling to the bottom. in may, the number of escalators out of service was 103 out of nearly 600 escalators. today, it is around 80. >> i wish they would invest the money in getting the things done faster. >> many of the 82 are out of service because we're rebuilding them, not because they're broken. >> reporter: well, there are other issues in this report card including metro police officers complaining that their radio service is working. sometimes, sometimes not. it is so bad some officers refuse to go to some stations when they have no radio service. that could be a big, huge safety issue. also some rail car
we are expecting what i think are unreasonable expectations. i'm a big believer in the jury system. i dedicated my professional career to it and i think it is the best system there is. >> bill: there is no other system. >> with that people have to go back and say what is realistic. prove beyond a reasonable doubt is not to a mat mathematical certainty. it is to a reasonable doubt. look at what is reasonable here. look at that cause of death. is there any reasonable doubt that this girl was murdered? >> bill: no. >> whether it was a premeditated murder or her mother was trying to quiet her. >> bill: if the little girl drown as i think one of anthony's attorneys said happened, you don't put duct tape over a drowned girl's mouth so that is out the window. you are not responsible for the the defense lawyers, you are not. these people introduce all kinds of crazy stuff they couldn't back up like i said in the talking points memo. weren't you offended as an american who wants justice for caylee anthony? weren't you offended by that? i was offended by that. >> a lot of the things that jose b
